"Good Night, And Good Luck"
Movie Still/Screen Capture

I found another still from "Good Night, And Good Luck," one I'd forgotten I had on my hard drive. Like the one I shared earlier on Instagram, this is from the "Box of Light and Wires" speech scene. Going around the table clockwise are: me, a lovely blonde actress whose name I've forgotten (sadly), Grant Heslov and George Clooney. Besides playing Fred Friendly, George directed the film. It's rare to be seated in the scene with your director who, between takes, is a total goofball. However, in this case, my slight smile was a performance.

For authenticity's sake, my character smoked in this scene. Practically everyone smoked during the 1950s, including Edward R. Murrow. (The nasty habit was the cause of or contributed to the deaths of many during this period.) A nonsmoker, I was provided with prop cigarettes that contained only some untreated tobacco in order to look right when they burned. I did not inhale. The only time my fag was lit was when cameras were rolling.

That's me at 8 o'clock from the movie "Good Night, And Good Luck." That's George Clooney (Perhaps our next #president?) at 2 o'clock. I played a news media colleague in the film's famous "Box of Light and Wires" speech scene, set in the late-1950s.

Some kind of subtext concerning history and a doomed repetition of it if something or other...oh, I forget...Fuck it. Every generation gets their chance to both buttfuck existence AND help it convalesce back to within a degree of humanity, sending it limping into the next generation, all hobbled and hurting, but still with a glimmer of hope in its eye....And most of those people back then would've thought what we have to contend with now(social media, biased media, galloping technological advance, ipads, ipods, smartphones etc.) to be outrageous science-fiction funny/crazy talk...#whereareweheaded #goodnightandgoodluck #edwardrmurrow #fredfriendly #davidstrathairn #georgeclooney #grantheslov #jeffdaniels #robertdowneyjr

Final prep for the career expo... "Never assume."

#tbt w/ retired #FredFriendly Prof. Dick Wald. Q: What's the take away from your class Critical Issues in Journalism? A: How to think about any story or event. Not just what you see in front of you but the context in which it lives.
Prof. Duy Linh Tu says, "Dick Wald, simply, is my hero." Abi Wright, executive dir of Prizes at the Jschool says, "With humor and insight, Dick Wald can navigate through some very tough discussions about reporting, ethics and standards. As the duPont Awards jury chair, Dick has demonstrated a truly unique ability to lead a room full of strong opinions about journalism to consensus. He makes it look easy, but it's not." #cjs16
